Paul Scheurich. Porcelain modeller, draughtsman, graphic artist

6 March 2020 to 11 February 2020

 

Paul Scheurich (* 1883 New York, † 1945 Brandenburg) was one of the most important porcelain modellers in the first half of the 20th century. Our theme exhibition marking the 75th anniversary of his death delves into his life and work.

Scheurich’s porcelain designs for Meissen and other German manufactories, augmented by rare bronze statues, drawings, illustrations and commercial art by the artist, yield a multifaceted portrait of the man.
